GILMAN CITY, MO (2011-01-24) An 18 year old Harrison county woman and her 11 year old brother are dead after an early Saturday morning house fire in rural Gilman City, that's southeast of Bethany.
Their parents are in the hospital. The body of 18 year old Brenna Lurten was found inside the house by investigators. Her 11 year old brother Briley was taken to children's Mercy in Kansas City, where he also died. Their parents, Brian and Maria Lurten, were both taken to the KU Medical Center with serious injuries. An initial investigation shows a faulty stove might be the cause but investigators are continuing to go through the rubble. The house was a total loss. Fire Departments from Cainsville, Gilman City, Bethany, and Eaglevill all responded to the fire.
